Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite comfort meals. This is a lighter version of the classic recipe that I adapted gluten free as well. I hope you find the recipe as satisfying as I did.

Here is how:
1. Place 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; flatten to 1/2 inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

2. Combine in a shallow dish:
- 1/2 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. dried basil
- Freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

3. Dredge each chicken breast in the following:
    A. 1/3 cup gluten free "all purpose" flour
    B. 2 large egg whites (beaten)
    C. The breadcrumb mixture

4. Heat 2 tsp. of extra virgin olive oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook for 8 minutes on each side or until done.

5. Preheat broiler.

6. Place 8 oz. of cooked gluten free spaghetti in a lasagna dish. Spoon 3 cups of marinara over the spaghetti and top with the chicken breasts. Sprinkle part-skim mozzarella cheese over each chicken breast.

7. Broil the dish for5 3 minutes or until the cheese melts. Garnish with basil and serve.
